DfT – £2 million to improve roads using new technology


The Department for Transport (DfT) have announced a £2 million fund to “allow councils to capitalise on emerging technologies and deliver better journeys for motorists.”

Local authorities have been invited by the Department for Transport to apply for a share of the money to develop projects to greatly enhance journeys. Proposals include using technology that will allow vehicles communicate with each other and roadside sensors to provide the drivers with real-time traffic information.
